Who Will Kiss the Crocodile?

We rated this book:


Who Will Kiss the Crocodile? is another telling of the fairytale Sleeping Beauty. This story is a lot like the original one, but a big difference includes the princess being turned into a crocodile before and while she’s asleep! The bad/angry fairy didn’t make me quite as scared as Maleficient in the original story, but this fairy does the same thing of putting a (different) curse on the princess (with a different name), and then a good fairy comes and changes it to her falling asleep instead of dying and being woken up with a kiss. The problem is – the princess looks like a crocodile, and who would be brave enough to kiss a crocodile?!

I actually didn’t remember if I had seen the original movie when reading this book, so after watching it, I was able to better understand the things same and differences between the movie and the book. The movie is only set in “old times,” but the book shows things happening in times like now with the clothing, people, and things happening. I enjoyed this book because it is easy to read with rhyming words, and the pictures are big and colorful.
